LOST: Wedding Ring on Mt. Evans

Postby mdwoodland » Sat Jul 14, 2012 8:21 pm

Please help! Today we hiked Mt. Evans from Mt. Spaulding. As we were approaching the West Ridge, Jennifer, my fiance, commented on how she wore her ring on the hike. To avoid scratching it, I put the ring in my zippered cargo pocket in my shorts at the West Ridge, we proceeded to the summit, and then descended down the NE Face. When we got back to the car, I felt for the ring and it was gone. I then notice a hole in the seam of the pocket just big enough for the ring to slip through. These were newer shorts, so I never thought to check the pocket for a hole. Now I can't stop beating myself up. We are so upset at the sentimental and financial loss of the ring. If you find it, please call, message, or email me and I will pay you a reward.

Thank you,

Mike

The diamond is laser-inscribed with tracking numbers for traceability, but that does us no good when it is at the top of a mountain.

On the west ridge, we were hiking/scrambling on the rock between the main trail and the top of the ridge. When we were descending the west face, we started off on the talus to the left of the scree on the NE face. After a hundred yards or so, we traversed over to the scree slope. I have a map with a red line drawn in, showing our route when the ring was supposed to be in my pocket. If you would like, send me your email address and I'll send you the map.

How terrible. I wish you the best of luck in finding it.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.
